What resources are available to foster parents?

Every child in care comes with a caseworker. The caseworker is a means of support for the child and his/her family, as well as the foster parents. Foster parents are also designated a homefinder, who certifies them and stays with them once they are a foster parent. A homefinder is strictly a support for the foster parent. They help to answer questions, are always willing to lend an ear, and provide trainings to help foster parents stay up-to-date on agency information. Trainings are also meant to educate foster parents on ways of helping the children in their home. Foster parents receive a monthly stipend, and support with counseling and/or services the child may need.
